Iran petchem sector up & running in post sanctions setting


TEHRAN, June 11 (Shana) – Managing director of National Petrochemical Company (NPC) said Iran’s petrochemical industry is at a good state and production of petrochemical products is going on as planned.

Speaking to Shana, Marziyeh Shahdaei, who is also deputy petroleum minister in petrochemical affairs, said the store houses are no longer filled with produced items, and petrochemical plants are productive unless they are being repaired.

She said this calendar year, which began on March 20, will be a good year for the industry given the fact that 10 new petrochemical projects will come online during the year.

Shahdaei said two or three petrochemical plants like Shiraz urea and ammonia plant are ready to become operational in Asslouyeh.

“Pardis Petrochemical Plant will come on-stream in the near future as Kurdistan Petrochemical Plant will become operational by late September,” she added.
